The word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword.
The Golden Text is from the Good News Translation in Today's English Version—Second Edition.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
. . . Praise ye the Lord.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
